Title (EN) SELF-LOCKING MICRO ELECTRO MECHANICAL DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF MICROÉLECTROMÉCANIQUE À AUTOVERROUILLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) The proposed invention application describes a novel configuration of an extremely small self-locking switching component, based on micro- electromechanical systems (MEMS) technology. Conventional MEMS switches need a continual control signal in order to obtain the wanted active (switching) state. The proposed invention needs only a short control signal (non-locking key) such as e.g. a pulse in order to switch the component on and/or off. RF-noise (ripples) on the de-control signal or bouncing effects can be neglected according to the proposed extension of the MEMS devices. This contributes to an easier and especially more robust design of electronic circuitries and allows for enhanced functionalities.
(FR) La présente invention décrit une nouvelle configuration d'un composant de commutation à autoverrouillage miniaturisé reposant sur la technologie de systèmes microélectromécaniques (MEMS). Des commutateurs MEMS classiques doivent recevoir un signal de commande continu pour obtenir l'état actif désiré (état de commutation). L'invention proposée n'exige qu'un signal de commande court (clé de non-verrouillage) comme une impulsion, par exemple, pour allumer et/ou éteindre le composant. Du bruit RF (ondulations) sur le signal de décommande ou des effets de saut de tension peuvent être négligés conformément à l'extension proposée des dispositifs MEMS, ce qui simplifie et renforce tout particulièrement la conception des éléments de circuit électronique et en améliore les fonctionnalités.
